Real-time tracking has quickly become an industry standard. Shippers expect to have complete visibility into their shipment's location at all times — for many, it is a requirement to haul their freight.
To best serve our customers while providing you with as many opportunities as possible, we need to work together to bring more transparency.
That's why Coyote requires all contract carriers provide some form of automated location updates.
4 Tracking Options: Choose What's Right for You
We’ve worked hard over the past several years to develop a full suite of tracking options to meet your needs and technological capabilities.
Choose the connection that works best for your fleet.
Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Connection
With the ELD mandate in full effect, all carriers should have a compliant device in their trucks. Quickly and easily connect your ELD to Coyote once, then provide your tractor number for the power unit you’re using, and you’re good to go.
Transportation Management System (TMS) with Direct ELD Connection
Coyote can connect with your TMS system through a data aggregator or directly via an API or EDI connection. Provide your driver’s tractor and trailer number once you're set up, and you’re ready to start hauling.
Coyote’s digital freight platform, CoyoteGO, allows carriers to easily search, negotiate and book freight on demand on any device.
In addition to finding and booking freight, the CoyoteGO carrier mobile app also allows carriers to provide location and status updates while in transit.
According to CarrierLists, CoyoteGO ranks highest in usage and stickiness among the traditional 3PL/broker apps. Don’t have our app yet?
Driver Cell Phone Tracking
Drivers who have provided consent to receive text messages can receive a text allowing drivers to provide location updates through their cell phone.
Bringing More Visibility, Together
Achieving 100% real-time visibility across our network means a commitment from everyone.
We realize there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for every carrier, and that’s why we’ve invested time and resources into giving you multiple choices to connect with us.
